i don't know what music genre they fall into, americana falls into mind but i coud be wrong, in any case i just recently burned "rainy day music","sound of lies" and " tomorrow the green grass" i'm just listening to rainy day music and it's really good...any thoughts on them and their other albums?

I'm suprised there isn't anyone else that has showed interest in this band. They are my all time favorite band on earth!
They aren't even known over here in Aus. I was lucky enough to have been given their albums from a family member who is a huge music fanatic. I grew up to their music and I am always in love with The Jayhawks. It really is a shame that they are not so well known, they have such a great sound and should appeal to anyone who is into country, alt-country, experimental, rock, pop, blues and more....its hard to pin point their genre as their albums are varied between these genres. But it's Gary Louris' vocals that make my heart melt....
I struggle to name a favorite album but I will always heavily rotate Tomorrow The Green Grass, Smile and Rainy Day Music (the more progressive albums of their earlier alt-country sounds). Anyone wanting to get an overall vibe of the band should get their hands on "Music From The North Country - The Jayhawks Anthology" which has an extensive track list of various songs from their career.
Such a lovely song. From Rainy Day Music
